A motion to adjourn not to be missed
Today we return to Parliament for the first time for the year.
Ministers will be presenting statements and a few bits of legislation. The Opposition may very well be asking some questions, as quirky as they may be.
The question is, will the Opposition actually do what politicians should be doing. That is having an open debate on political ideas and ideologies.
We shall see. Tune in to motion to adjourn.
Last week Thursday I attended a funeral service for a very dear person. Like all services, different persons went up to the pulpit to give tributes, read her life story and to sing songs of celebration.
All was going well right up until the eulogy.
The designated pastor gracefully took to the stage, and then recounted growing up with the dearly departed.
Then out of the blue, pun intended, the pastor launched into what could be considered near blasphemy.
Standing on the podium, she stated oh so proudly that she had converted her husband, a man born and bred in the East, into a Somerset Cup Match supporter.
The congregation were aghast; well, half of us. How could a St George’s man allow this?
The other half gleefully cheered her on. They need prayers.
Parish Pride Project
Since the beginning of the year, a growing number of young Bermudians have been coming out each Sunday to do their part to ensure that Devonshire is well maintained.
Areas such as Devon Spring Road, Devon Spring Lane, Green Acres and Middle Road have been trimmed and cleared of trash.
Both males and females have been coming out. One Sunday we actually had a mother-and-daughter team; last week we had a brother-and-sister team.
This speaks to this being truly a family affair.
Along with siblings, we have had major support from persons in the community with donations of items such as water, trash bags, and baked goods.
On Sunday, we will be working on clearing up Vesey Street from 10am to noon.
Our meeting point will be at the Vesey Street entrance to Somersfield Academy. We will be providing safety equipment, food and snacks.
Students attending can earn three community hours.
If you are interested, please feel free to reach out to me.
